p.2 Reward - It appears that John Newman of this city was on board the Maggie Hunter as a passenger when she was lost about a fortnight ago. Her father offers $20 reward for the recovery of the body, a description of which appears in another column.

An Extra Trip - The steamer Pierrepont will make an extra trip to Wolfe Island tomorrow at half-past ten, in order to give persons from the city a chance to hear Mrs. Youmans address a meeting in favour of the Dunkin Bill at the Town Hall.

Marine Notes

Schooner Odd Fellow Ashore - The schooner Odd Fellow, in attempting to make port last evening, and when nearly in the "jaws" of the piers, drifted to leeward, and after striking the east pier, went ashore under Fort Ontario. The tug Dana tried to get hold of the vessel before she struck the pier, but was unsuccessful. The vessel lost her bowsprit and jibboom, and her deck load of lumber was washed overboard. The Odd Fellow is owned and commanded by Capt. Robertson, and we believe is not insured. The cargo is consigned to J.K. Post & Co.

Off - The schooner Blazing Star was pulled off Fighting Island Monday forenoon by the Magnet, and is now in Detroit port awaiting a charter.

Going - Gone - The only thing which remains visible of the Grace Greenwood, which went ashore at St. Joseph about two weeks ago, is a floating spar.

Arrival of the Montpelier - The schooner Montpelier, for which fears have been entertained, arrived yesterday. She was delayed by head winds and storm just as many others of the fleet were. [Chicago Inter-Ocean]
